James Grinnell, Group People Director, Currie & Brown

“For us, apprentices already form an important proportion of our workforce - and we believe in the value of apprenticeships for securing future talent. In light of the levy, we’re partnering with University College of Estate Management to get the most value out of our levy spend. UCEM has a fantastic reputation within the built environment sector for providing high-quality online education and apprenticeships, and all programmes are designed with significant input from the industry itself.”

Martyn Scott, Emerging Talent Manager, Skanska UK

“From my perspective the apprenticeships that UCEM offer mean that we have another means of bringing talent into our commercial teams and to develop the expertise and capability of our people. We’ve been able to offer opportunities to a number of different employees by providing them with time and support to continue their studies and apply this to their role on our projects. We chose to work with UCEM due to their expertise in the field and the flexibility that their approach offered to both us and our learners.”
